DRAGGIN: Garage Built, Daily Driven. (Indy's build thread)

I realised that despite the large number of various threads I have here, I do not have a complete build thread. So, instead of just showing you some pictures of the finished product, I decided to compile a build thread. This is mostly for my benefit; I want a complete record of the transformation of my truck, but I hope that some of you enjoy reliving the build process with me as well.

I know I've left you hanging on some of my threads in the past, but I will see this one through to the end. Dont ask for pics of the finished truck, I'll get to that in due time.

Glad to see it's back around always love that truck

Indy how's the new car coming ?
Looking good , you going to try and bag it on the stock front end or mk2 ?,I'm going over to my dads Friday to drag my 53 to my new house I still will not be starting on it right away but I plan to lay it out on the stock front and 4 link the rear
Yes I do have a parts car I'll get pix of the metal for you Friday I have no issues with cutting that one up , I'm going to use the frame from it and that's it

Sounds like a good plan , I'm in the same boat I got almost everything I need to bag mine all I need is a tank sense I used the one I had in my truck
I have read of people getting low with a good bit of work but I think I only found one layed out on the hamb with the torque tube but I can't remember who it was I know I was searching bagging 49-54 chevy on hamb and found it
Nice, I need the tunnels and enough metal around them to mold them into my car. I don't care if it's rusted or dinged up, as long as there's enough metal left to work with.
I think there in ok shape just surface rust but I'll get pix Friday because I can't remember and we will go from there but I'll give you a good deal on them
Here are the pix of the 53 tail light area , let me know how far back you want me to cut off and my zip is 22551 so pm me an offer and we will go from there

I also have a full set of 2 door hardtop Belair trim if you want any trim
See less See more
Ok sounds good it will be here , I'm going away next weekend but plan to bring it to my house the weekend after
When I bring that car to my house soon ill check for you
